It's great to know people are talking about this environmental issue. It's even more satisfying when people demonstrate how to take steps toward eliminating the problem.Thanks for sharing! 👍 i try to remember to always have bags with me for food shopping, now i want to carry a box with me. I hope we are making progress on helping the Earth heal so that we too can heal. Best wishes on leading the way. 🌍
